User permissions - shutdown/taskbar

Hello,

We have a situation where a user does not have access to shutdown or change taskbar settings on his machine.  He is also having a problem running his contact application (palm.exe)

We just moved his laptop over to a new domain and I recreated his profile.
I have given him local admin rights.  Looking at the local Security Policy has Admins and Power Users able to shutdown.
When logged in as the local admin palm.exe works fine.
When logged in as domain admin palm.exe does not work (get dll loading errors - same as user)

thanks

You can get more detailed results using the /V switch and redirecting output to a file, e.g.
gpresult /V > report.txt

The GPMC provides a more friendly interface, so you might want to consider using that instead.

thanks,

My network admin had a policy associated with the Remote Users gp that disabled shutting down of machines.  Worked when remote users were not on the domain.  Now...not so much!

Thanks for the gpresult info.  That let me research differences between user accounts.

Palm.exe issue is still there, but obviously is related to something else.
